I just got back from Epcot after seeing Boyz II Men again.  *sigh*  I just can't get tired of seeing them in person.  I caught another rose, this time from Shawn, and I got to shake hands with him. . . TWICE!  Those guys really can put on a show! 
I might put in new pics I took later.

So I was wondering... What was your inspiration for Marina? What inspired you to create her?
DisneyFan-01 Featured By Owner Nov 10, 2014  Hobbyist Filmographer
Well, it's a long story.

But if you really wanna know, here it goes.

It all started back in 1999 when I was 14, my best friend and I were BIG fans of Sailor Moon and DBZ.  This was about a year or so before the season that introduced the Outer Senshi to the US and before we even knew there even were Outer Senshi other than Pluto.  Therefore, the two of us started creating and drawing our own senshi and crossover fanfiction of our favorite animes.  She made the senshi of the constellations led by Sailor Andromeda and I made up my own Sailor Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune.  While working on them, I grew a liking to my creation of Neptune since she would have the power of the ocean and I love the sea.  I named her Marina Seabreeze as her civilian form.  I gave her hair a little like Jessica Rabbit since that's one of my favorite styles and had her be age 16 since I couldn't wait to be that age for some reason then.
Pretty soon, the two of us finally learned that there already were Outer Senshi and even Senshi from beyond (Starlights, Galaxia, ect.)  We were like :ohmygod: .  But we still continued making our own different anime fanfiction crossovers.  I got to watch the new season of Sailor Moon, and I went crazy over the two new senshi Uranus and Neptune.  Didn't take long for Michiru Kaioh, or as I knew her then, Michelle, to become my favorite character of all.  However, for some reason, I still couldn't let go of MY Sailor Neptune and I just continued making my fanfic replacing Michiru with Marina.  I was a weirdo.  I admit it.
About a year passes and my story came through some changes.  I changed the name Marina 'Seabreeze' because it just sounded like a deodorant brand.  It was then I had watch the old movie 'The Secret Life of Walter Mitty' found the name 'Seadrift', which was a brand name of soap in the movie.  I just like the sound of it, so I changed it all to 'Marina Seadrift'.
It was that same year, I think, I decided to give Marina a love interest in my fanfic.  My heart was set on my anime crush at the time.  Piccolo from DBZ, or Colo-chan as I called him.  All through high school, I kept drawing pictures of Marina and Colo-chan as a couple and wrote the story down in my computer for my eyes only.  Things were going good until 2002.
That was when I started reading up about DragonBallGT.  Back then, I actually thought that this continuing story of DBZ was written by it creator Akira Toriyama and that it for real.  When I found the Japanese episode of when Colo-chan dies and this time for sure, I was completely heartbroken and really cried for weeks.  My biggest anime crush was killed off and left me not knowing how to continue my story of him and Marina, knowing that if I wrote this event down, it would leave Marina very heartbroken for her lost love.  I just didn't know how to go on.
But a miracle happened.  I went to see in the theater 'Treasure Planet'.  The moment I saw the beautiful animation of Glen Keane on the character John Silver, my heart was healed and I was starting to fall in love with Disney animation again as I did when I was kid.  Around the same time, I played the game 'Kingdom Hearts' and I suddenly came up with a whole new idea for Marina Seadrift.  While this idea was coming around, Treasure Planet came to DVD and I watched it almost every day.  It didn't take long when I started to have a crush on John Silver.  It was settled for me then.  I started to continue writing and had Marina slowly fall in love with Silver. 
The weird part about this, it was still a crossover with Sailor Moon, DBZ, and gradually moving into Disney.  As college was in its first year, I was starting to feel that it was getting crazy to blend in my favorite animes with Disney.  So, at last, I just decided to set my old story on floppy discs away to the attic (or I think my mom threw most of the old art away), and start all over creating a new story of Marina called 'Faithful Hearts'.
That following year in college, I was introduced to DA and joined it.  As I was putting in my drawings and ideas of my brand new story of the new life of Marina Seadrift, I was given a lot of advice on how to improve her.  At first, I was really stubborn about it and didn't take the advice and critiques, which ended up with me getting trolled and all that.
During my senior year of college, I was starting to take some of the advice and started to do a few changes in Marina and the story.  However, I was still getting trolled a lot and pretty soon, my account on DA was hacked.  All of my work got deleted, but I had the administrators banned the hacker and they had me start over again on a new account.  That was six years ago now.
During those six years, Marina has been going through a whole lot more changes.  The story 'Faithful Hearts' went through a few upgrades and soon was changed to the title "Faith of the Heart" after one of my favorite songs by Rod Stewart.  More and more improvements were coming around thanks to a few of my ideas and a whole lot of great advice from others on DA.  Pretty soon, Marina Seadrift and her love with John Silver was becoming more popular on DA and fewer trolls came around which kinda shows that she really has improved.  She may not be a perfect character just yet, but she will be getting there, maybe.

That pretty much narrows it down.  Hope it's not too long to read.

It's OK, I don't mind the long read. XD
Wow, Marina's gone a long way! I'm impressed by the change in art style and how much you've grown over the years, good job. :D 
I look forward to reading more of her adventures with Silver and the gang. ^_^

Ok i am very extremely confused. Who exactly is marina and how did she cone to meet silver. I love the comics but i just want to know more about Marina.
DisneyFan-01 Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2014  Hobbyist Filmographer
Marina is just my original character whom I've been drawing for 16 years now.
I've been drawing her as Silver's lover for . . . mmm. . .  I think it's been ten years, maybe eleven.

If you really wanna know a bit about her, you should read my story.  But if you don't wanna, I'll make it as brief as I can.

Marina is the daughter of High Lord Chancellor Darren Seadrift who is always away on duty for Queen Illyssa of the Terran Empire (the Treasure Planet empire).  With him being busy a lot and since her mother, Angela, who was Lady in Waiting to Queen Minnie Mouse, died when she was very young, Marina was raised in a castle with King Mickey and Queen Minnie as her guardians.  She was trained in the art of defense with a magic sword, but she can't have her sword appear out of thin air unlike Mickey, Donald, and Goofy can with their weapons, UNLESS she is at a certain range around them.
Anywho, Marina lived a great sheltered life in the castle like a princess.  She got everything she needed, got to go where she wanted whenever she wanted, and was visited by her loving father whenever he had the chance.  Her life long dream was to become an explorer and travel to all of the other worlds she read about her whole life.  However, being so sheltered with her friends/ family she always had a slight fear of being out on her own so she never went out to the Etherium/space, but spent most of her years exploring all parts of the woods behind the castle and stuff like that.
When Marina was 18, she met one of her father's new young bodyguards, Robert Nelson.  It was love at first sight for the two of them.  After being together for over two weeks, they get married.  Robert offers her the promise that he will help her fulfill her wish by being her own bodyguard as she would sail the universe by her side.  After being married for less than a month, Robert sail back to Parliament with Marina's father for the last time as his bodyguard.  However, this was when the Procyon Armada was at the brink.  The ship was attacked and Robert protected Lord Seadrift from Admiral Boas, but lost his life.
So, Marina is a young widow.  15 years have passed by.  The whole kingdom is about to have a big celebration in honor of the former ruler, Yen Sid.  However, Nightmares (monsters that are created from our bad dreams) start appearing.  When they start attacking inside the castle during Marina's first fight, she gets rescued by John Silver.  He tells the gang that he came to the world tracking down the Nightmares leading him there.
Mickey says that since this is the first appearance of Nightmares since long before Marina was born, then it has to be because of a prophecy that was told to him by Yen Sid.  The gang have to hurry out to the forest and find the one the Nightmares are after, Merlin.  However they were too late to protect him.  So now the gang must venture out and prevent the Nightmares from taking more people like Merlin and figure out what the prophecy means.  The only way for them to do this quicker is to go separate ways.  Mickey goes one way with Pluto to find Yen Sid while he lets the rest of the gang go with Silver after he makes him a privateer.
Through this mission, Marina's greatest dream of being an explorer comes true as she finally gets to travel the Etherium and study all of the other worlds and their cultures.  Along the way, a part of her hopes that she would find a new happiness since it was time for her to move on with her life.  Never did she expect that she would find that happiness with John Silver.  Especially since she didn't like him at first, but she slowly grows fond of him and later falls in love with him. 

That kinda narrows it down.
